Loenbro, a portfolio company of Tailwind Capital, announced that it has acquired Switch Electric, a Phoenix, AZ-based electrical contractor serving mission-critical data center construction and maintenance customers throughout the Arizona market. This transaction represents Loenbro’s fourth acquisition since Tailwind acquired the company in October 2018.
“We’re proud to join Loenbro,” said John Fleury, Switch Electric’s Founder & CEO. “Loenbro’s robust geographic footprint, excellent reputation as a contractor-of-choice within the industrial services market, and established back-office support capabilities greatly enhance Switch’s ability to service our customers on a national basis.”
